Kelly Gang Inc. cancels charity fundraiser due to coronavirus

The Kelly Gang Inc. (founded in part by Media Ink’s Keith Kelly) has canceled its annual charity fundraiser which was set to be held at Michael’s Restaurant on March 24 due to growing concerns on the coronavirus.

The organization still plans to make a donation to this year’s beneficiary, the Rory Staunton Foundation for Sepsis Prevention, named after a 12-year-old boy who perished in four days after contacting sepsis from a fall in gym back in 2012. His parents, Irish immigrants Ciaran and Orlaith Staunton started the foundation to lobby for changes to hospital protocol and to educate schools on the dangers associated with sepsis, which kills more than 250,000 people annually.
